Friars reel in Marlins, 4-1 final

Okay let me try and piece together what happened in today's game.  I heard the first few innings on the radio and then caught the end of the game on TV, missing the middle in its entirety, so I'm using my imagination liberally.

  • Jon Garland started off walking Marlins like they were old ladies and he was a boyscout trying to earn a merit badge.  He bounced back though and finished with 10 strike outs in 6 innings.
  • Luke Gregorson pitched the 7th inning, setting a new Padres record by retiring 25 straight batters.  Pleased with his new record he then gave up a bloop single, so that the worldwide press would leave him alone and he could regain his privacy that he holds so dear.
  • I'm pretty sure everybody in the Padres line up except Garland had a hit today.  I could be wrong about that though.
  • Both Nick Hundley and Adrian Gonzalez were gunned down at home plate.
  • Umpire Jerry Crawford took a foul ball to the ribs and left the game.
  • Heath Bell shaved his head to support his father who has lung cancer.  He picked up his 5th save with the game ending on a spectacular diving catch by Will Venable with runners on the corners.
